Give Love this #GivingTuesday

| November 20, 2017

Black Friday bargains, Cyber Monday sales… the headlines are full of opportunities for us to get deals in the next week. On #GivingTuesday (November 28), make plans to give by supporting First Hand Foundation’s Love Bag program.

A Love Bag is a backpack full of essentials for children facing difficult situations. Last year, First Hand distributed more than 5,000 Love Bags, providing important necessities like sleepers, toothbrushes and toothpaste and comfort items like blankets and books to children in need.

Follow First Hand throughout #GivingTuesday (November 28) for updates on the items most-needed to fill our Love Bags. Then, shop our easy-to-use Amazon Wish List to help us stock up on these essentials. For less than $20 you can make a meaningful contribution to this important initiative. We’ll be announcing our most urgent needs throughout the day, so be sure to jump in with your items.

During last year’s campaign, Cerner associates and First Hand supporters all over the world gave 1,200 items to the Love Bag program. Our goal for this year is 1,500 items—and you can help us make this happen! #GiveLove this #GivingTuesday by supporting First Hand. When you do, you’ll be providing comfort to vulnerable children facing foster care, abuse prevention centers, or financial hardship.

We’re asking for gifts of these most urgently needed items:

  • 7am: Newborn Sleepers
  • 9am: Child Size 4 Pajamas
  • 11am: Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
  • 1pm: Teen Yoga Pants/Sweatpants (Size Large)
  • 3pm: 12-month Child Outfit
